🥖 Purple Sweet Potato Bread - All week long I’ve been playing with dough and out of that came ‘buttermilk & honey dinner rolls’ (which the kid enjoyed hot out of the oven with a generous smear of salty butter), a plain white bloomer loaf, a half rye loaf and this pretty purple sweet potato loaf......my first attempt at bread making included a very sticky dough that got stuck to the bottom of my dutch oven 😬😅.....so you can imagine just how excited and proud I was that I managed to get edible loaves this time around. This time I started off super simple, using fresh yeast and a jargon free recipe that I found on the back of the @sainsburys strong Canadian bread flour bag. I adjusted it accordingly for each loaf and baked in a preheated dutch oven for a nice crusty crust. I haven’t sliced the purple loaf yet as it was still warm when I photographed it, I’ll report back once I do. Happy Friday, friends. 💞

Unstuffed cabbage casserole 👏🏻 this is what happens when my fridge fills with cabbages from @farmhousedelivery and I’m like WHAT IN THE WORLD.
The other day I was asked where my recipe inspiration comes from & I kind of blanked 🤷🏻♀️ sometimes it’s a childhood favorite revamped or something Justin is craving and I try to squeeze all the nutritious ingredients into.
When I reflected on the question later I realized most of my inspiration comes from my @farmhousedelivery box!
I love how having @farmhousedelivery always pushes me outside my comfort zone, my boxes always provide seasonal produce that I wouldn’t typically buy & it forces me to get creative in the kitchen 👩🏻🍳 my fridge fills with cabbage, kohlrabi and green garlic and my mind wanders to what I could make with this array of ingredients. Sometimes I’ll find a great recipe to use (like this one from @zerrin_giverecipe featuring @countertopfoods kitcheri) but other times I’ll find myself substituting 80% of the original ingredients to make it my own!
What inspires you?

PPS does this sound like an ad? I feel like it does. It’s not, I just really really really love my @farmhousedelivery 😂 .
It’s a good day for freshly baked beer bread! Our Arizona winter has had more rainy, gray and cold days than I can ever remember. This of course means I’ve been making more soup and baked items to fatten us all up 😂 Today I’m making the Joy of Cooking recipe for beer bread. It has whole wheat flour, all purpose flour and old fashioned oats to make a nice hearty loaf that goes perfectly with soup!
